“The public may boo me, but when I go home and think of my money, I clap.”
– Horace (Roman poet-critic, Epistles, c. 20 BC)

The boos of the public don’t concern me, but I plan on dying penniless, surrounded by the people I love. Money has incredible value, but only if you can give it to others. Perhaps I’ll feel differently in 10 years, but clapping alone doesn’t seem like much of a life.
